On the Driver side press the 2 Buttons together , red temp and the blue temp button press for 5 sec....

and you well see the Engineering Menu :thumbsup:

there you can find some good Features, factory reset and the serialnumber and pn number from the unit, with this the dealer can find in the e.r.e.s the anthitheft code.

Good find. My RA4 freaked out the other day. Buttons on the center stack and steering wheel stopped working. No volume, climate, etc. Couldn't turn off the screen or go into audio settings.

Noticed that the USB drive wasn't showing up..pulled it out of the socket and the SD card too and the screen went nuts...picked up EVERY button push I'd made while trying to figure it out haha. If it were running Windows, I'd have seen a BSOD in there.

So, only had my jeep since last Tue. I've been using a USB thumb drive , no issues until today. After starting up the Jeep, I pull out and the last song resumes playing, for like 2 sec then the screen locks up. Tried reseating the thumb drive, but could not detect unless I shut off the engine, locked up the car, then restart. I went as far as removing that album from the thumb drive, but the same track kept trying to play. I tried this RESET option, and it did clear up the issue. But now it comes up with a message that my PHONE 911 needs service. Calling my dealer now.

Mine put up the attached photo yesterday. I emailed the photo to my dealers service manager who sent it to Chrysler. He said that Chrysler said the vehicle needs to be left with them for a couple hours to run diagnostics.
Wonderful. Think I'll wait a while for others to develop the same problem and see what happens.

Update - Today, everything works fine. Have to see what tomorrow brings.

I got that error last week. Dealer had it for the day and got the apps working after talking to Chrysler. Had to order the hub under the center console, something up with it and the radio not showing signal bars.

By hub, do you mean the spot where the SD Card, USB, etc. is?

No, underneath the actual center console (or so I'm told). My phone went back to "normal" after the uconnect froze on my way home from the dealer and I had to shut the car off for a minute or so then restart...took everything a minute to reboot and it was fine. I wish there was a way to force a reboot without having to go through all this hubbub.

Since I did the RESET, I only got the message about seeing dealer about 911 service twice. Maybe it just took some time to complete the RESET? I know the first time I re-started the engine after the RESET, I saw SRT come up on the NAV screen. That was cool! Still going to have the dealer take a look Friday. There may be some other things that got RESET.

I told the service tech at the dealer what happened before and after I reset. It's acting normal since the reset, and he said that would clear any history of what the problem was. So he didn't try to do anything because it was basically cleared. So, if it happens again I need to not reset it and then take it in. Then they can run a diagnostic on it, and get the data of the actual problem.

I've been having this same issue the last part of the week. Took it in to the dealer and they rescheduled me to Tuesday. Once this message displays, a red light turns on on the rear view mirror. Also, the SD and USB slots weren't reading any of the music. Did the reboot from the engineer menu and it resolved these issues, but the 911 message came back up. I'll have the dealer still look into this and see what they say.

Does the overall volume seem low...thought the stereo would be louder and at max 38 just seems low vs other vehicles I have had
